The Boston Red Sox are working their way into playoff contention with the help of a very impressive week-long stretch.

Boston has posted a 5-2 record while batting .337 and scoring 8.6 runs per game over its last seven games. The pitching has improved as well, creating some solid all-around improvements.

If the series against the New York Yankees told us anything, it’s that this Red Sox team can definitely hang with Major League Baseball’s best teams.
